BM is making me crazy...LONG

Recommended Posts

Aww. Brittney PLEASE don't feel bad. This is no failure on your part. In fact, you should consider it a point of pride that you choose your friends carefully and don't call just any old body a girlfriend. I'm the same way, and to be honest, it used to bother me too! But the older I get, the more I'm learning that its quality and not quantity. I've had some people bail on me and sort of stab me in the back....people I would have thought would be down for me through anything. Turns out, they weren't. Made me feel bad to realize I only had one truly good friend a couple years ago. Now, that circle is expanding, but I'm in my 30's and its taken all that time to get to this point.


Again, don't feel bad and don't blame yourself for HER shortcomings. There's nothing wrong with being settled at 24, in fact ,I think thats the perfect age to slow the hell down and stop behaving like a full time party major. I feel sorry for the people I see going out every Friday night knowing they are the "oldest" people in the bar. hahahaha. Nothing wrong with going out, but its not a long term lifestyle and some people just don't get it til they are way older than they should be.


You enjoy your family as your bridal party. I wouldn't give this chick another thought beyond telling her "Nevermind, sorry to have bothered you."

I am much more settled. A big reason why I wanted her to be a BM is that she is the only girl that I have had a long term friendship with. My other BMs are all family. It's really making me feel like I have failed in the female friend department with all of this going on.
You should not feel that way at all! People change as they get older, and weddings always seem to open people's eyes about who true friends are.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
